O'Malley tests 2020 waters with Iowa poll.

'Donald Trump is only in his second month in the White House, but already one Democrat is polling his party's Iowa caucus-goers ahead of a possible 2020 run for the presidency.

The leadership PAC of former Maryland Gov. Martin O’Malley commissioned a Public Policy Polling survey of the first-in-the-nation caucus state earlier this month, according to a copy of the results obtained by POLITICO.

The poll, which shows O’Malley at 18 percent of Democratic caucus-goers in a field of nine potential candidates if the contest were held today, also asked the Iowans about New Jersey Sen. Cory Booker, former Housing Sec. Julian Castro, New York Gov. Andrew Cuomo, New York Sen. Kirsten Gillibrand, California Sen. Kamala Harris, Minnesota Sen. Amy Klobuchar, Facebook COO Sheryl Sandberg, and Starbucks CEO Howard Schultz. “Not sure” got 32 percent of the vote.

O’Malley — who ran against Hillary Clinton and Bernie Sanders for the 2016 nomination before dropping out on caucus night after earning less than 1 percent of the vote — was joined at the top of the poll by Booker, who was at 17 percent. Neighboring Senator Klobuchar, who's been a frequent visitor to Iowa over the years, got 11 percent. All other candidates were under 10 percent.'>>>

2. The Martin O'Malley group serves as a safe haven to discuss and learn about Governor Martin O'Malley

If you choose not to do so, you are invited to leave.

4. Thanks, DavidDvorkin; you're right.

I guess I was being 'soft.' (Some complain about Governor O'Malley being 'soft!')

5. Definitely encouraging news.

I really like O'Malley. He dropped out way too soon in the 2016 election for me to be able to follow him closely, but I liked what I heard from him. He really seems like my kind of guy.

6. I agree, a candidate of substance

needs attention. I hope he gets it this time.

7. He looked good when Jordan Chariton of TYT came across him

at the Native Nations Rise march last week. BLESS HIM FOR BEING THERE.
He was fiery, but down-to-earth; I hope he learns to relax and act more naturally on stage than he did during the last primary.
